83 chevy 6.2 180,000 miles

starts, runs rough for a few seconds, then stalls, sometimes squeeks. Seems to be getting fuel up to the injectors. glow plugs are cycling properly. Problem started while rolling up to a left turn lane (decelerating)- it just stalled. No indication of rough running before it stalled. Able to restart (immediately-within 2 seconds of stall while still rolling). Drove for another mile slightly rough running- it sounded like a fuel delivery problem. stalled again and has not been able to run for more than a few seconds since. Been told by a diesel mechanic that I've lost at least one cylinder (engine has not been opened up yet). Sound plausible ?

Also, whats the approx. going rate for the labor to swap out the engine for rebuilt core (including hooking up all components). I live in So. Cal.

Thank you.

'We've sold 7 engines in 4 months through DieselEngineTrader.com - one to Utah, three to South Dakota, one to New York, one to Kansas and one locally in Wisconsin! I also advertise in other publications but DieselEngineTrader.com gets the best results and at a great price too! I like the way that my engines are shown at the top of Google searches and DieselEngineTrader.com will definitely be playing a major part in my advertising from now on.'

'We bought a new John Deere engine via DieselEngineTrader.com for a great price and were able to sell it locally for $1000 less than our competition. We really appreciate the website - it's great!'
